For this crafty adventure, we were challenged to
reuse/recycle/re-purpose some no longer useful/leftover item(s) and turn it into something wonderfully crafty or artsy. I jumped in with both feet!
First, what to reuse?
Ah, on old, ugly apron that I already cut the ties off of and reused (ooo, a two-fer)
Cut it up...really up
There wasn't enough apron left for all the pieces I needed, so I went to the sewing closet for some leftover fabric. I vowed to use nothing new, except thread....hard to recycle and respool that, eh.
Who knew I had some of the quilt block fabric leftover from, ahhhhh, 13 years ago!
A little creative piecing to create a useable size
Next thing ya know, I've got a cute little bag.
Perfect for lunch; a mini shopping trip; crochet; toys, trick or treating...anything really.
Wow! how my style has evolved since this quilt block was made. I still love orange, but I've really gotten into the bright retros and b/w and let's not forget The Ghastlies!
Ah heck, my style is all over the place, but a lot less traditional than it used to be.
Please check out my fellow Earth Day Hoppers to see how they found creative ways to help ol' Mother Earth. (keep reading....all the way down....something fun is a comin'!)
Guess what? This little bag can be yours! I know right....
How, you say....
Leave a comment and your contact info and Tuesday morning, not so bright and not so early, I will do the whole random number generator thang and one of you lucky hoppers will be the proud owner of this little beauty. If you don't want to be entered, but want to leave a comment, that's okay too....just say so.
